When Jesus first spoke to the brothers Andrew and Peter, who were fishermen by profession, he told them to follow Him and He would make them fishers of men. Andrew and Peter might not have grasped exactly what those words meant at the time, but in the coming months and years, they would see the Lord’s words come to fruition.

Are you looking for a sweet, petite tabby? Well, meet Mollie. She likes warms baths, being held like a baby and looking out the window. She loves to play with toys and even gets along well with small dogs. Mollie is a 2-year old, 8.02-pound, female domestic shorthair mix, a grey and black tabby. She has very distinct stripes and intense, green eyes that implore you to take her home! Mollie was found by a kind individual who brought her to the shelter to find a loving, forever home.

Q. My family was involved in a car accident. My brother was driving and my 80 year-old grandmother was also in the vehicle, along with my mother. It was the other driver’s fault. We are attempting to settle, but the insurance company only wants to pay for medical bills and damage to our car, even though we went through a lot of stress and other financial loss. What can I do to have them compensate us?

Q. Three years ago, a credit card company filed a lawsuit against me. I answered the lawsuit. I heard nothing for almost two years, until I received a notice of hearing on a motion for summary judgment. Isn’t there a four-year statute of limitations for lawsuits? Shouldn’t this case now be dismissed?

Crystalette is such a beauty! Her white coat shines like a diamond. She is the kind of dog that has to been queen of the castle. This little girl likes to run to keep her trim figure, so she will require a fully fenced yard and would do best in a home with no young children. With a Queen B attitude, she will be the dominate dog of the household. But that does not mean she doesn’t like play; she loves her two temporary brothers that reside in the same foster home.

SETMA’s soon-to-be 21 years of healthcare delivery can logically be seen in three seven-year segments:

• 1995-2002 – marked by the development of a team approach to healthcare, electronic medical records, which morphed into electronic medical management, population health, and the foundation of analytics and data management with 1999-sentinel events that continue to define our care delivery.

Ahhh, Peter, the loudmouth, the out front one, the oft spokesperson for the disciples, the leader, and the one to get into major trouble while serving the Lord – we can learn from him. He, perhaps, was an unlikely candidate for Christian service, but his life should serve as an example of forgiveness to those of us who would follow in his footsteps.

Q. I was renting a house with two of my friends. The house burned down because of the electrical fault. We still have six months more to go on lease. We did not have a renter’s insurance. The fire was not our fault. We lost most of our property. We assume the owner has insurance. Can we file to recover for our damages? Can we get compensation toward rent?

The Nissan Murano received its third-generation redesign for the last model year. And for 2016, Murano remains virtually unchanged as it continues its success of offering a unique exterior and interior styling design.

Like the original Murano, the latest version is a highly sculptural, aesthetic design — one that stands out.
